Painting a Flower with Gouache
Learn how to paint with gouache starting with this beautiful orchid with artist instructor G Caruso. The video is a recording from our ongoing series of free livestreaming drawing and painting classes.
Gouache is a painting medium very close to watercolor, in fact if you already have a watercolor palette, you just need to buy a tube of white and you’re ready to go! The difference between gouache and watercolor is mainly the fact that gouache is opaque and allows more rework and layering than the unforgiving watercolor. Gouache could be a comforting interlude before getting back to your watercolor practice or a valuable tool for creating studies for future oil or acrylic paintings.
If you are interested in learning more about painting with gouache check out the workshop Sketchbook Practice: Gouache starting November 1, 2021.
